Bird on Branch Mini Chocolate Covered Cakes on SoapQueen

This delicious, edible chocolate project is made with my bird.on.branch mold available at Bramble Berry. Originally intended for soap making, the mold material is PERFECT for molding chocolate! I have provided a gluten free vegan recipe for the cake as well as links/resources for vegan chocolate and cream filling if you want to make this project all Vegan. Check it out on the Soap Queen Blog.

I made these cute labels for the cakes - download the free clip art for the labels here: Bird.on.Branch Mini Chocolate Cake labels

Charlie the Squirrel

Charlie the squirrel, king of Sherman Oaks, CA paid us a visit during our morning coffee. He was surprisingly bold walking right up to our feet. Being from the East Coast where Squirrels are evil I was a little jumpy. Luckily he was after my pumpkin seeds and not my toes!

Enough Soap for A Year!

Ok, that is silly. After all, I have enough soap for a few dozen years, but I am not talking about my soap, I am talking about the fabulous soap I procured at the Nova Studio's 7th Anniversary Party soap swap! I don't even know... it is maybe 10 bars! (yes,) It was a while ago but I just dusted off some pics I took and brought out the soap to reacquaint myself with the lovely scents, and just had to share them with you!

Loft Soap
